Thyroid Testing

Feeling a constant fatigue?  Having foggy thinking?  Is your weight unmanageable despite exercise and healthy diet?  These symptoms may be caused by an imbalance in thyroid hormones or those produced by the adrenal and reproductive glands. The Canary Club offers several hormone tests to give you a precise report on the interaction of these three hormone producers. A complete Thyroid Test is available in our four Comprehensive Test Profiles, and eight of our Specialized Test Profiles. The Thyroid Hormone Tests assay the essential TSH, TPO, free T3, and free T4 hormones of the Thyroid plus Elements.

Comparing Neurotransmitter Tests To Hormone Tests


What are neurotransmitters and why should I care, anyway?

Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals Brain_function_1.jpgthat facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. A synapse is like a spark plug - it's simply a gap between two neurons. And like a spark plug, an electrical signal must spark to jump across the gap.

There are two kinds of neurotransmitters – INHIBITORY ( Serotonin, Dopamine and Gaba ) and EXCITATORY (Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, Glutamate).  Excitatory neurotransmitters stimulate the brain while inhibitory neurotransmittors calm the brain and help create balance mood. They affect the other, as the Inhibitory are easily depleted when the Excitatory neurotransmitters become overactive.

With rapid advances in laboratory science and home diagnostic tests, we are now capable of probing deeper within the root causes of depression, compulsion, addiction, cravings, fatigue, lack of concentration, low libido, sporatic appetite, and erratic sleep. Many of us suffer from these occasionally, but chronic conditions can affect you and your family and need your immediate attention. 

Mild to moderate depression affects up to 10% of the U.S. population

Check Your Neurotransmitters for Goodess’ Sake.  You’ll be glad you did.

New research studies reveal a more direct cause of hormonal imbalances, and otherwise ‘hitches in your gitty-up’, can be linked to neurotransmitters. For chemical signals, however, the synapse secretes a chemical that floats across the gap to the upstream neuron.  These chemicals have an important role in allowing the body to work properly and sustain good mental and physical health.

The efficiency of these synapses is the primary focus of science today in many aspects of mental, emotional, and pyschological health. As we age, our neural pathways become less efficient and less capable of transmitting either the electromagnetic or the chemical signal. Some of the neurons even change shape, with ends lengthening or shortening. This affects the overall health and balance in the body.

Neurotransmitters help the brain balance the highs and lows of feelings, and manage the hormonal signals that are sent to other organs in the body. They work with receptors in the brain to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as: mental performance, emotions, pain response, hormones, and energy levels.

Having a Brain Meltdown?


Were you aware that when you blamed your bad mood on having a so called ‘brain melt down’ that actually, you may have  been right? And get this, virtually all clinical reports of mood disorders identify neurotransmitter imbalances as, at least a contributor, if not the root cause. If there is any interruption or over stimulation in the signals in your brain it can seem like the equivalent of the type of meltdown we see with our computers. You know, when it runs sluggishly or can’t retrieve files from memory? Well, sometimes our brains do the same thing. There are a plethora of symptoms.

Recognize the symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalance - and  test for them

Neurotransmitter Tests are for select individuals when the condition is caused by inefficiencies within the brain's ability to transmit electromagnetic and chemical signals. 

Hormone Tests are for those individuals when the condition is the result of poor efficiency of the various endocrine glands throughout the body to signal each other and work in harmony.

Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalance include everything from lost motivation, to irritability, to poor concentration, to worse, lack of sex drive! But fear not. Testing is available and provides a way to understand an individual's specific neuroendocrine imbalances, which can be corrected with neutraceuticals, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), diet, and lifestyle course-corrections.
